Wide Back Wednesday

Little in the middle but he got much back … baby got back! But not the back you’re thinking about. Thick, wide, ripped would describe someone’s dream back. The V-Taper that make your waist look tiny is the ultimate goal of anyone! The back is a large body part, made up of…

  1. Trapezius
  2. Rhomboids
  3. Latissimus dorsi
  4. Erector spinae

  • Large, but not overdeveloped, traps that establish the upper back.
  • Wide lats that extend low down the torso, creating that priceless V-taper.
  • Bulky rhomboids that create the “creased valleys” when flexed.
  • Clear development and separation in the teres major muscles and infraspinatus.
  • A thick, “Christmas tree” structure in the lower back
